and plow the fields and harvest food. we have now created an environment so that this predisposion towards depositing fat in the body is no longer an advantage. it's a disadvantage. genes also play a role in how fat is distributed. the riskiest fat distribution is the male or android or apple shaped distribution where most of the fat is in the intra-abdominal cavity. there are many more metabolic consequences and many more medical problems associated with that fat distribution-- for example, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes mellitus. now that's opposed to the gynoid or female distribution, or pear distribution, where the excess weight is in the hips and the buttocks. now, for some reason, that obesity is much less likely toto contribute to the metaboc and health consequences. obesity is no longer confined to those who are middle aged or older. increasingly, the patterns associated with obesity are found in the very young. barbara korsch: many people believe a fat baby's a healthy baby, but from a health point of view, more obese babies go on to be fat adults. stopping the pr
